New Bridge at Ball Bark.
Among: the improvements at the
!ase ball park this season is a new
bridge that is being placed over the
drainage ditch north of the park to
peimit the automobile owners who de
sire to attend the games to drive into
the park without getting their cars all
eve. mud and dirt. This will be a
much appreciated change, as hereto
fore it has been necessary to run the
machines through the mud and water
in the ditch in order to reach the park,
and this has caused a great deal of
annoyance to the drivers and owners
of the automobiles. The work on the
bridge will be pushed to try and have
it ready for the game Sunday.

Several years ago the city in
augurated a crusade against the
dumping of rubbish and old cans and
other refuse on the bottom lands east
of the city and restricted the dump
ing of such refuse to' the dry chan
nel of the river east of the roadway,
It seems that for some time past
parties have been violating this edict
of the city by piling all manner of
rubbish along the east side of the
automobile road leading to the Mis
souri river ferry, and fifty or sixty
feel inside of the limit set by the city.
This- pile of refuse is plainly visible
from the Burlington depot and is very
unsightly in the extreme to those
driving into the city along the road
way and a stop should be put at once
to the practice and the violators made
to understand that they cannot dump
their rubbish at will over the bottom,
as if it is continued it will only be
a sl.ort time until the refuse is piled
aloi-g the roadway in great heaps.
The matter is one that should receive
the prompt attention of the city
authorities and those violating the
order of the city shown where to get

The following taken from the April
edition of the Trans-Mississippi Elk,
the official paper of the Nebraska
State association, in speaking of the
Elks' Male Chorus surely shows the
value of the organization that will ap
pear here on Friday evening, May
7th. in concert, and while the program
used at the Omaha concert will be
changed in several items, it shows the
high class of music used by the
chorus. The program in this city will
be interspersed with a number of the
lighter airs, which are very popular at
the present time:
The Minneapolis Glee club, stopping
over in Omaha one day last July,
homeward bound from the grand
lodge meeting in Denver, inspired the
organization of the Omaha Elks' Glee
club. Simultaneously with the birth
of that inspiration, and most oppor
tunely for its furtherance and de
velopment, Professor Alexander
Emslie, a musical instructor and
vocal conductor of many years' ex
perience, came to Omaha from Colo
rado, and became associated with the
Omaha Conservatory of Music. He
is an Elk and it became immediately
evident that the man and the oppor
tunity were here simultaneously. Car
roll II. Wright became the organizer.
He worked under all kinds of dif
ficulties, but he persisted until ho
rounded up the required number of
first and second tenors and first and
second basses. Then the rehearsals
commenced and the process of elimi
nation followed, necessitating the se
curing of new members in place of
those who withdrew for various
causes. Kenearsai woik tanes rime

the rock upon. which many glee clubs
split hopelessly. But the Omaha Elks
were game, and they stood every acid
test to which they were subjected.
coming lortn nnaiiy as one oi me
most promising, singing organiza
tions, considering the few brief weeks
of rehearsals that they had, in the
entire western country.
They made their first public ap
pearance at the Elk memorial service
n the Orpheum theater Sunday, De
cember G, 1914. Their work at that
time, after only a very few rehearsals,
was good and while it was not par
ticularly remarkable, it was very
promising. So they kept on faithful
ly, tirelessly, but enthusiastically with
their rehearsals under the strict dis
cipline of Professor Emslie.
There were skeptics among the on-
ookers of the Omaha Elks. Th?y
were not many in numbers, but they
were quite insistive that the glee club
proposition would never work out.
Thase "doubting Thomases" have been
won over to the supporters of the
singers until now it is safe to say that
ihey have the undivided support of
the entire Omaha lodge.
They have sung occasionally at the
Elk lodge meetings. At the funeral
of our late brother, William T. Can
ada, in the lodge room on Easter Sun
day, they sang "Nearer My Cod to
Thee." "Absent," and "The Vacant
Chair," in so soft, sweet, soothing
tones, as to go direct to the hearts of
everv Derson present, winning the
commendation of all.
In the meantime they changed their
name to the Omaha Elks' Male chorus
As such they determined to go to the
grind lodge meeting at Los Angeles
next July, just as the Minneapolis
singers went to Denver last July. This
was a big undertaking, too large for
the lodge to finance out of the funds
It was too expensive a trip for some
of the singers to pay out of their own
pockets. Therefore the members of
the chorus decided to give a concert
in the Brandeis theater Friday even
ing, April 9th. The call that they
made on the members of the lodge to
buy tickets met with generous re
sponse, insuring them a large and

THE WORK OF SEWER
AGE TO BE STARTED ON
The decision of the city to start the
stoim sewer proposition by opening
up the work of fixing up the Wash
ington avenue sewer and extending it
a block this season will ba the source
of gratification to all parties in that
section of the city, as the work has
been needed for years, and with the
placing of the sewer entrance a block
farther un the street will lessen ma
teiiully the chances of the sewer not
being able to carry o!F the flood water
after one of our heavy rains. The
extension of the sewer will also add
greatly to the value of the property
along the avenue and make several
practically worthless lots along the
pathway of the creek as desirable as
This has for years been one of the
problems of the city that has handi
capped them in assisting that portion
of the city located along the creek
on both Chicago and Washington ave
nues, and the creation of the levy for
tho purpose of sewer extension which
will allow of one block being built
each year will soon dispose of the
creek question. Each side of the city,
it is figured, will share alternately in
the work of sewer extension, the north
side having it this year and the south
side next year, and so on until the
work is completed and the addition to
the sewerage system of the city will
take avray the creekbed that for years
has extended through the best part
of the city, making much of the prop
erty worthless. Get behind the im

best steps undertaken by the city in
